Institutes of research on higher education and science
Along with a few professorships dedicated to research on higher education and science, Germany has a number of organisations and institutes, including both university-affiliated and non-university bodies, that pursue such research. The organisations and institutes involved differ in terms of their thematic emphases, disciplinary approaches and research traditions. In addition to pursuing their research, they often take part in study programmes devoted to such research, and – to varying degrees – advise policymakers. These organisations and institutes are presented in the following.
